Get more direct bookings with Google Hotel Ads

Including Google Hotel Ads & Meta Search as part of your Hotel Digital Marketing Plan

The Google Hotel Ads platform has made quite an impact in the Hospitality business since its launch as Google Hotel Finder in 2011. If you search for a hotel in your area, you will be returned a map with a list of various accommodation options. If your hotel is not showing on Google Hotels (also known as Google HPA – Google Hotel Price Ads) then you are missing a very important and relatively low commission route to more direct bookings.

Using Meta Search marketing channels your hotel can secure more direct online bookings at lower commissions than OTAs. Using Meta search, such as Google Hotels, also helps with your overall branding since bookers are routed directly to your website.
